Stochastic error process description requires ex ante knowledge of the channel's statistical properties, especially the statistical properties of error sequences and error gaps produced by the process during an error burst.
Consecutive sequence of "1" is called an error burst. A gap may be defined as a sequence of consecutive "0" between two "1" and represents the distance in bits of two neighboring bursts.
* Small-scale (intra-packet) error burst length distribution
Modeling the error burst and error gap process then becomes a matter of observing the first and second moments of both processes in the trace and applying them equations (10) and (11).
As cleared in the previous section, the block interleaver is not efficient with 2-D error bursts. As a result, there is a need for an advanced interleaver for this task.
Note that, the chaotic interleaving mechanism has a better treatment to both 1-D and 2-D error bursts than the block interleaving mechanism.
Packet losses tend to occur during short error bursts separated by long periods of relatively error-free transmission.
RS codes achieve the best performance when repairing error bursts [11].
